Met my daughter during a weekday lunch hour and the place was packed, which is always a good sign. She went with corn on the cob with melted cheese and a quesadilla. I had 300 Likes, or grilled tilapia and a latin salad. Our meals were very tasty and the service was solid. This is not a chain restaurant. I... More

We loved it! I had the sope and it was very tasty. My husband loved his tacos. The fresh made chips were delicious with the guacamole. Highly recommend it.

The guacamole and chips were excellent!! The steak taco plate was filling and the flavor was average. I tried polzole soup for the 1st time out of curiosity and I'm not a fan. I understand, you either like it or you don't. Just not my type of soup. I had mine delivered to my hotel room and the food was... More

The food is fresh, the menu is great. The prices weren't all that great, the bill was like a running tab so your bill builds as you order. My suggestion, give us some all inclusive menu items. However, the food is great!

We tried this place because a colleague told me it was good. My management team all went and had a decent experience the first time. We tried it again and it was the total opposite experience. Our server never cracked a smile and when our food came out the portion sizes were wrong, one of my managers asked for no... More

We like this little place for really good Mexican food, fast and inexpensive. Plus, they know they're gluten-free protocol. Not much atmosphere, but friendly and delicious.

What a refreshing discovery! I might have never visited this privately owned mexican restaurant in the business mall on the southeast corner of Milwaukee and Washington, except for the social media buzz. It's well deserved. The homemade pan Latin menu here is absolutely delicious. Step up to the register and make your order and it will be cooked to order... More
